One of three interrelated, commissioned pieces for 8 Days in June 2007 sponsored by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) and Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MoCAD). I worked with a small team of my students (credits above) to create these pieces meditating on and reacting to school shootings, with a focus on survival instincts, loss and compassion. The pieces installed at Max M. Fisher Hall looped silently for 8 days with a curated selection of unique live accompaniment each day; this piece was installed silently at MoCAD, Detroit, MI summer 2007.
